It's Official

This morning the passports arrived for Chad, Noah and I, and Jordan and I picked up his passport this afternoon. I guess now that we have our passports and our tickets that means we're really leaving for the Philippines!! I better get workin' on the house some more.

Poor Noah had the peak of his cold today and didn't fare so well at the daycare. He only lasted half the day and dad got called to pick him up. I did get to spend some wonderfully precious time with him though this evening. While Jordan was sleeping we had noodles and cheese for dinner, a water fight in the bath, cake, and story. The evening was ended in play time with daddy before bed. I love my Noah. He's so sweet. He is learning so much and growing so fast. He makes me laugh every day. I'm sure he'll love the Philippines and will have no problem making friends.

'hawks Rock!!

Just like his brother did, Jordan sports a mohawk! Proud to say we have a pretty cool kid with a pretty cool doo. Jordan has been doing so well and is eating A LOT!! Noah adores him and constantly is shoving his face in Jordan's. We do need to keep a close eye on the two of them together.

This week has been full of blessings for us. We have had more donations come in and we have had a Waldorf Daycare offer us a spot for Noah two days a week at no charge while we prepare over these last three weeks for our big move. Noah had his first full day at the daycare today and had a WONDERFUL time. He came home so happy and full of energy. It has been hard not being able to have the time to get him out of the house, so this generous opportunity has literally been a Godsend. This will allow us to get lots accomplished while he's away, then we can focus the other days more on him.

Today I spent the day informing relevant parties of our change of address from our home to Chad's parents home. I also got caught up on some more packing work and online work. I did try to buy the rest of my midwifery supplies, but the vendor and I were playing phone tag. Hopefully tomorrow we can get that taken care of. Even though it didn't feel terribly productive, it turned out to be quite a productive day.

oah is such a good boy and so full of grace. He is sensing the upcoming changes and is doing very well. I can tell Jordan is picking up on our stress levels too. He is needier and likes to be held more. I have found our new 'cuddly wrap' to be a HUGE help. Jordan loves it and will sleep for hours against my chest. It frees me to do lots of work and pay attention to Noah too. Gotta love modern carriers going back to how it was done in the old days:).
